Falcon Heene, the six-year-old boy that was believed to be floating at over 7,000 feet in his family’s homemade balloon was found alive. It appears that he was not in the balloon.
From CNN: He was found in a box in the attic at his family’s Fort Collins home, according to authorities.
This is obviously best-case scenario. It was speculated by many that Falcon had released the balloon and then hid in fear, which appears to be the case. Hard for the Heenes to be upset after what they must have been going through.
Glad to hear that Falcon is okay! Hope he’s okay with his new nickname, because he’s stuck with it.
